I'm in the midst of a semi-busy week with aunt Barbara and uncle David coming this Sunday. I am so excited to see them!!! Even though yes, uncle David will drive me nuts, no doubt about it. Right uncle David?
Jimmy is in Ontario, Canada, so, I've been trying to get some deep cleaning done. Ya know, the stuff you don't do nearly often enough, like wiping down the floor boards, giving the doors a good cleaning, touch-up painting and stuff like that. I've also been trying to make the guest room more welcoming, to Jimmy's utter chagrin. Chagrin. What a weird word. I mean, who the hell even uses that word? Well, I guess I do.
Anyway, I bought a very simple quilt in bright white, something that is totally different than what I'd usually choose. Here's a picture of it.
Of course I wanted to add some color to the room but nothing blaring. I was looking for soothing. So, I got these drapes.
They're not due to arrive until Friday. I was going to put the curtain rod up today but I couldn't find the cordless drill. Jimmy "cleaned" the garage last week and now everything is in weird places that they totally don't belong.
One last thing before I go. On Easter morning at my in-laws' house, this cardinal kept perching himself upon this really high tree and singing. He was just so beautiful but I wasn't sure I could get a good shot of him because he was in a neighboring yard and at least 30 feet up. I figured it was too far for my $200 Nikon to handle. I was wrong.
Check him out!
I don't know what the hell kind of tree that is, but I LOVE it.
Orange blossoms smell soooo good. I miss that smell. We don't have orange groves this far north in FL, unfortunately.
And lemon blossoms smell divine too!
And that is the conclusion of my flora and fauna (or should I say, wildlife photography... ahem) pictures.
Hope you all are having a great week! And remember, if something special is going on, please email me and tell me to get my ass to your blog!
Pssst! If you love me, you might love my
